Abstract

On a smooth manifold M, the vector bundle structures of the second order tangent bundle, T^2M bijectively correspond to linear connections. In this paper we classify such structures for those Frechet manifolds which can be considered as projective limits of Banach manifolds. We investigate also the relation between ordinary differential equations on Frechet spaces and the linear connections on their trivial bundle; the methodology extends to solve differential equations on those Frechet manifolds which are obtained as projective limits of Banach manifolds. Such equations arise in theoretical physics. We indicate an extension of the Earle and Eells foliation theorem to the Frechet case.
